News India after losing the fourth ODI by 11 runs in Antigua will look to turn the tables and seal the series in the final ODI at Sabina Park on Thursday The Men in Blue failed to chased down a 190-run target set by the Windies but Hardik Pandya who had a decent partnership with MS Dhoni continues to back himself to do the job as a finisher for the side “The conversation with MS was pretty simple to be honest The power which we both have we thought to take the innings deep and then chase it down Most times we would chase 31 off 29 balls but then we were not able to finish I back myself to finish the game for the team and all these instances are part of the learnings” Pandya said during a practice session at Sabina Park Dhoni who has been under scrutiny for his poor run with the bat played the slowest innings in his international career where the right-handed batsman brought up his 64th ODI fifty in 108 balls Pandya promises that team India will bounce back in the series decider

we play our best cricket” he said further Pandya was in good touch with the bat in the Champions Trophy final against Pakistan before he was involved in a terrible mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja When asked about the incident he said “It took a lot of time Only three minutes to behonest It was just an outburst I get hyper quickly and after few minutes I was laughing in the dressing room Looking at me some of the players were laughing too” Ever since making his debut against New Zealand in 2016 Hardik has gone on to become a vital member in the 50-overs side Hebelieves that he can contribute equally with both bat and ball “I am pretty happy with the way things are going for me Both with bat and ball You should be brave enough to do the job that is required of you I back myself to play in any situation I see myself as a proper all-rounder and not bowling or batting all- rounder” Pandya credits skipper Kohli for the improvement his game has undergone and believes Kohli has been a big influence on him He also revealed that he was aware of the conditions in the Caribbean because of his Mumbai Indians’ teammates Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons “I am pretty close to the names you took (Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons who are not part of the ODI team) The first call was to Pollard I asked him about the pitches and conditions They are my brothers from another mother It would have been nice to play with them and enjoy some healthy banter” he concluded For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsUnited

existing venues (Source: AP) Top News Calgary would need C$24 billion ($181 billion) in funding to cover the shortfall between revenue and costs if the western Canadian city were to host the 2026 Winter Olympics according to a group exploring a potential bid The Calgary Bid Exploration Committee told the City Council in a presentation on Monday that C$22 billion in revenue from the Games would offset less than half their C$46 billion cost “I am confident when I say that the Board and staff at CBEC have diligently reviewed all aspects of bidding and hosting a prospective 2026 Games and the numbers we are sharing today accurately represent the current situation” CBEC Chairman Rick Hanson said in a statement The committee said Calgary’s funding requirement was reduced given the 1988 Winter Games host had the ability to re-use existing venues rather than build new ones The group said it had included post-Games endowments and facility operations costs in its budget estimates “One of the things we identified from looking at some prior Olympic Games was the failure to account for post-Games operation and maintenance of facilities in their budgets” said Hanson “While this adds cost our Board felt it was a necessary addition to a prospective budget” The Committee is scheduled to make its final recommendation to the city on July 24 For all the latest Sports News download

episodes this was probably the shortest season ever since its inception in 2004 But this was also the season when the tables turned for the host of the chat show Karan who was equally grilled and put into embarassing spots by his guests The fifth season will definitely be a talking point not only among its audiences but also among the B-town biggies for reasons more than one Following the trend from previous seasons Karan has invited a prolific jury to honour the best performers of the season we wonder who will get the prestigious “Koffee Awards” But before Malaika Arora Neha Dhupia Ayan

controversial Saif Ali Khan-Kangana Ranaut While Kareena served us with gossips fresh off the stove current heartthrobs Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh left us with our stomach aching with laughter

flag bearer of nepotism” are still not settled Also read |Koffee With Karan Season 5: Ranveer Singh’s ‘noise’ vs Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘poise’ on the Karan Johar show So after putting in much thought the

his wife except laugh continously 3 Best performer: Though Karan Johar will never agree with us on this one but Kangana Ranaut is the undisputed winner of this one She was confident she was

list of categories this year or not but for us the infamous Koffee shots gave us a lot of gossips From Saif Ali Khan cheating on his partner to Priyanka Chopra having phone sex all of it left us

NewsThe successful flight of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) on Thursday evening marks an important milestone in India’s journey towards achieving full capability to launch heavier satellites Before the launch Image courtesy PIB With today’s launch GSLV has entered its operational phase giving Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) much needed lift power It was the third consecutive successful flight of indigenously built rocket with the crucial cryogenic upper stage engine and the first one officially described as ‘operational’ as opposed to earlier ‘developmental’ flights Incidentally it was seventh successful launch from the Satish Dhawan Space Station at Shriharikota this year Designated as GSLV Mark II the rocket propelled an advanced weather satellite INSAT- 3DR weighing 2211 kg into its designated orbit at the end of the flight lasting a little over 17 minutes The GSLV flown on Thursday was similar in configuration to the two developmental missions that took place in January 2014 and August 2015 This gives Indian space agency the capability to inject 2 ton to 25 ton class satellites into Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) For launching satellites that weigh up to 4 tons Isro is working on the next version – GSLV Mark III test flight of which is likely in a few months GSLV Mark III will also be used for launching the lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 Meanwhile the agency plans more flights of GSLV II in order to establish this as a robust launcher Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) is capable of launching satellites weighing below 2 tons With over 30 consecutive successful launches PSLV is now a commercial launcher From this point of view GSLV has a long way to go It has taken more than two decades for Isro to induct full-service GSLV into its fleet of rockets Since 2001 the agency has launched a total of ten GSLVs – six with cryogenic engine supplied by Russia and four with indigenously developed cryogenic engine It has been a mixed bag of success Two GSLV flights with Russian engine were unsuccessful while a third mission was partial success Of the four GSLV flights with indigenous cryogenic stage (including the latest one) three have been successful The first flight of GSLV with indigenous upper stage one in April 2010 had failed The mission had failed even before ignition of the cryogenic stage The efforts to develop a rocket with cryogenic propulsion began in the 1990s Initially it was planned to procure cryogenic engines and technology from American aerospace firms When this did not materialise for commercial and strategic reasons India opted engines from Russian space agency Glavkosmos Russians first agreed to supply cryogenic engines and transfer technology but backed off under American pressure Glavkosmos finally only supplied six cryogenic engines and the first flight of GSLV with Russian upper stage took place in 2001 Along with GSLV flights with Russian cryogenic engine Isro has been developing its own cryogenic technology for rockets named – GSLV Mark II and Mark III Cryogenic propulsion is technically challenging and is considered a strategic technology It is key to the success of any robust space programme because it allows heavier payloads to be carried into space more efficiently A cryogenic rocket stage provides greater thrust for every kilogram of propellant it burns compared to solid and liquid propellant rocket stages It is strategic because it gives the space agency capability to be independent and also become a commercial player Just a handful of countries possess this critical engine technology A rocket with cryogenic engine is referred to as ‘icy hot’ because when the lower stages of the rocket with solid and liquid fuels are igniting with temperature reaching 3000 degrees and more the upper cryogenic stage remains super cooled at -250 degrees and more Thousands of liters of liquid oxygenand liquid hydrogen remain encased in massive chambers – till the cryogenic stage gets ignited Cryogenic stage in rocket is much more efficient and provides more thrust for every kilogram of propellant it burns compared to solid and liquid propellant stages The INSAT-3DR launched by GSLV on Thursday has been designed to provide a variety of meteorological services to the country It has several advanced payloads like Data Relay Transponder and Satellite Aided Search and Rescue Transponder Its imager will generate images of the earth disk from altitude of 36000 kilometers every 26 minutes and provide information on various
